CJCR & CRASSH international conference:
The Religious Roots of Contemporary European Identity
Cambridge, Westminster College, 10-12 July 2006
The conference is jointly organised by the Centre for the study of Jewish-Christian Relations (CJCR) and the Centre for Research in the Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities (CRASSH) of the University of Cambridge. It builds on CJCR’s cooperation over many years in Central and Eastern Europe and will enable participants to tackle some of the more difficult issues, which are often not addressed in public life or international diplomacy because of over-sensitivity to religio-cultural issues.
1. Contemporary European identity and its religious roots.
2. Identity, memory and ‘religious nationalism’. Case study: Poland.
3. Religion and secular society. Case study: Czech Republic.
4. Multiculturalism and social inclusion. Case study: United Kingdom.
5. Beyond the habitual cultural and religious realm: Russian Orthodoxy, Islam and further European integration. Case studies: Ukraine and Turkey.
Scholars from some of Europe’s finest universities as well as political and religious leaders will be offering papers. Contributions are expected from Dr Jolanta J. Ambrosewicz, Institute of European Studies, Jagellonian University, Krakow; Ms Lucia Faltin, CJCR; HE Ján Figeľ, Member of the European Commission; Prof. Tomáš Halík, Charles University, Prague; Prof. Sławomir Kapralski, The Centre for Social Studies, Warsaw; Dr. Edward Kessler, CJCR; Dr Stanisław Krajewski, Warsaw University; Prof. Irina Levinskaya, Institute of History, Russian Academy of Arts and Sciences; Dr Milan Lyčka, Charles University, Prague; Prof. Zdzisław Mach, Director of Institute of European Studies, Jagellonian University, Krakow; Dr Philip Matyszak, CJCR; Ms Sara Silvestri, University of Cambridge; Dr Grant White, Principal, Institute of Orthodox Christian Studies, Cambridge; Dr Anna Szczepan-Wojnarska, Wyszynski’s Catholic University, Warsaw; Dr. Melanie Wright, CJCR.
